[PATCH 0/2] x86_32 cleanup: KERNEL_IMAGE_SIZE
From: Stratos Psomadakis

I noticed that KERNEL_IMAGE_SIZE is no longer used by x86_32 code
(head_32.S no longer uses it for the initial kernel mapping).
We can thus remove the assert from the vmlinux.lds.S file, and
remove it completely for x86_32 code.
Since head_32.S doesn't use it anymore, I can't find a reason
why we should impose such a limit on the kernel image size
(although a 512+MB kernel image isn't what one would call a realistic
I think that a limit on the size of the image is imposed anyway
by decompress_kernel()(if I understood correctly).
I also updated the comments in head_32.S which still had references
